(I hope the Rangers organization is aware of this treatment option)
The title is somewhat misleading, because we, as a board, have discussed Dr. Carrick before. Carrick is, as you mentioned, the doc that treated Crosby:

But Maher thought his spinning chair should be in the hands of the medical community, so in 2010 he loaned one to Life University in Marietta, Ga., for experimental use.

A functional neurologist there, Dr. Ted Carrick, noticed immediate results in patients with various brain injuries. Carrick practices chiropractic neurology, a field that uses no drugs or surgery. Carrick has since been recognized as the first to effectively use the GyroStim for brain injuries, and his profile became much bigger after he treated Crosby in 2011. The Pittsburgh Penguins star suffered a concussion in January of that year and saw little improvement for several months before seeing Carrick and undergoing treatment in the GyroStim.
If Sauer has not gone this route, it is baffling to say the least.
